Formed in 1948 by Alicia Alonso, the National Ballet of Cuba occupies a prominent place in Hispanic and international ballet culture. The tiny island of Cuba has produced one of the foremost schools of ballet, which has trained all of the company’s dancers. It is extraordinary that Alonso produced this quality in only sixty-two years. As National Ballet of Cuba’s artistic director for more than six decades, Alonso has honed the company’s style to perfection, which has helped produce many of the world’s top dancers.
